Pop star Justin Bieber has been pretty busy lately. On March 19, he released his sixth album Justice, topping the Billboard 200 for the ninth time - then only weeks later on April 4, he surprise released a follow-up EP, Freedom.

Careful listeners might recognize a familiar song within a song off that EP, on second track "All She Wrote."

That sped up vocal sample throughout the track is none other than the late, great Gerald Levert! It's the song "It's Your Turn," a slow jam off Levert's 1998 album Love & Consequences.
